I should like to inform you of the arrangements we have made for the end of term and the beginning of next term. School will finish on Tuesday 24th July. All Key Stage 3 & 4 students will be dismissed from school at 2.15pm. KS5 students will be dismissed 12.15pm.
Students are expected to be in full school uniform on that day, including their blazers. There will be no school buses available so students will have to make their own arrangements for reaching home.
We have to complete our attendance figures on the last day of term, so if your son/daughter/ward is absent during the last week it is essential that school be informed immediately. If we do not receive this information we cannot “authorise” the absence and it automatically becomes “unauthorised”, and hence a truancy. We would be very grateful for your help in this matter.
On Thursday 16th August ‘18, the school will open at 9.00am for Year 13 and at 10.00am for Year 12 students to collect exam results. On Thursday 23rd August ‘18 at 9.30am the school will open for Year 11 students to collect examination results. Once results are collected, every student will receive a destinations interview where they will either confirm their place and courses for study in Year 12 or 13, or confirm their next destination in Education, be it College, Apprenticeship or University. This is extremely important and students should ensure they do not leave the results session without this meeting.
School begins for students in Year 7 on Tuesday 4th September 2018 for an Assembly at 8.40am.
Years 8, 9, and 10 should return to school on Wednesday 5th September 2018 for an 8.40am start in registration groups. Year 11 will be starting on the same day with an assembly at 8.40am in the Main Hall.
The new Year 12 should return to school on Wednesday 5th September 2018 at 8.40am in the Drama Studio for induction. Lessons will begin period 2 on that day.
The new Year 13 should return to school on Thursday 6th September 2018 between 10.00am and 12.00 noon and go to the Common Room for enrolment. Students will receive a time for enrolment on results day. It is important that they attend this appointment time.
All sixth form students will then be provided with final timetables on Friday 7th September.
Please ensure that your child is in full, correct school uniform on their first day in school in September. Details are available on our website. Sixth form students will also have received detailed information regarding standards and expectations of professional wear.
We thank you for your support this year and we hope you and your family have an enjoyable summer break.
